    We are a family located in Charlotte, NC. I have wanted chickens for years and finally pulled the trigger a month ago!
    We got a mixed flock of six: buff opington, dark brahma, australorp, gold laced wyndotte, bielefelder, and French copper maran.
    I spend my nights surfing backyard chickens so I figured it was time to become part of the community of chicken owners!!!

    Hello!!!

    G’Day from down under CharlotteChickz [​IMG] Welcome!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    Turning to Backyard Chickens is the best way to spend your nights - keep folks out of trouble unless they decide to order a hundred or so chicks on line when they only have room for 6.[​IMG]
